Primetime Wine & Dine with My Kitchen Rules and Royal Caribbean Cruises

24 February 2015

Stellar cruise line Royal Caribbean is partnering with Channel 7 juggernaut My Kitchen Rules (MKR) to launch its new 'Wine & Dine' promotion.

Unlike some of the teams on MKR, Royal Caribbean will be scoring nothing but 9s and 10s when 'Wine & Dine' kicks off today, the first of its kind for the brand.

My Kitchen Rules is the perfect fit for us because at Royal Caribbean International we pride ourselves on our range of world class dining options onboard all of our ships," says commercial director of Royal Caribbean Australia Sean Treacy.

From relaxed and family-friendly restaurants to formal bistros, guests across the entire Royal Caribbean fleet will be treated to international flavours from a host of dining choices.

"Just as cuisine from around the world is featured on MKR, from innovative Japanese to family style Italian, festive Mexican to fine-dining American grill houses  – the food is international and there is something for everyone onboard a Royal Caribbean ship,” Mr Treacy adds.

The campaign will showcase the exceptional dining available on Royal Caribbean's world class ships alongside the exceptional meals created on Australia's most watched television program.

Guests who book before 11 April 2015 will enjoy a complimentary premium drinks package (valued at up to $1,026) and prepaid gratuities for two. Balcony or Suite bookings for the local 2015/16 Australian season will also receive a bonus $200 credit per stateroom.

Fares start at $1,799 for a 10-night cruise from Singapore to Fremantle departing 3 November 2015 onboard Explorer of the Seas. Not only will you call in at foodie hotspots, Langkawi and Phuket, but you'll have a choice of over six restaurants onboard.

This incredible offer includes new bookings for Australian sailings between 21 September 2015 and 28 April 2016, PLUS worldwide* sailings department after 15 May 2015 of five-nights or longer.

In the 2015/16 Australia season, Explorer of the Seas will join Voyager of the Seas and Radiance of the Seas in Sydney, while Legend of the Seas will be the first Royal Caribbean liner to be based in Brisbane.

*Excludes sailings onboard Quantum of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas, Trans-Atlantic sailings and all sailings departing from China.

Give me street food over Michelin stars, cellar doors over wine bars and small towns and wide open spaces over big cities any day. Travel for me means ticking off the 'to eat and drink' list one regional flavour and wine bottle at a time.
